The BGCLAH has played a significant role in planning my future and ensuring a rewarding academic career. I’ve found a community that fostered a degree of confidence and self-assurance that I didn’t know I was capable of having. The Club has cultivated an environment that promoted exploration and growth, and what I’ve gained from the programs and people here is immeasurable. Because of the BGCLAH, I graduated from San Pedro High School with a 4.68GPA and will be attending Columbia University, majoring in sociology. After undergrad, I hope to pursue my Ph.D. with the goal of establishing a platform for people with similar experiences as myself. I want to be able to elevate voices and create a more equitable society with diverse perspectives.

Back Boys and Girls on Their Pathways to Success

Boys & Girls Clubs is raising $250,000 to steer students onto Pathways to Success so that kids can realize the futures that they want. The Club has been a life changer for Nicolas Velazquez, who grew up in a family suffering from alcoholism in Wilmington, California, a city fraught with violence. Thanks to the Club, Nicolas got the structure and support he needed to prosper in school where his GPA is now a 4.3. His goals are to attend a university and to give back to his community by becoming an elected official. 

“Not bad for a kid who wasn’t supposed to be here,” Nicolas says. “I am walking proof of what the Club can produce and I want to let it be known that Great Futures truly do start here at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor.”

A $5,000 donation is enough to sponsor one young person like Nicolas as they journey toward a rewarding career and hopeful future. Each donor will be assigned a boy or girl and receive a photo, thank you letter, and periodic updates on the child’s progress.
